Hello ICLWers

I've been advised that the best way to start ICLW is to give a brief history of where I stand.

Right now, I stand in the middle of Nowhere, both literally and methophorically.

I live very far from an RE and thus haven't been released from my regular gyno in to RE care after 14 moths of TTC without a single BFP. I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am to go back to see my gyno (after more blood work of course) on April 12 after 6 weeks of thyroid medication to see where I stand.

Hopefully, my numbers will be better and I will be referred to another local gyno who does IUIs.

Side note: An update to my regular readers, sorry I haven't been commenting on your blogs, after AF came on Wednesday, then I got the plague on Thursday, vomiting, diarrhea, the whole nine yards. (It's going around my work, a horrible GI tract virus) I'm still dehydrated and feel hungover. I got out of work on Friday but am back at work today. It's CD7 and this doesn't bode well for this month. Hopefully this doesn't affect ICLW and my commenting on other blogs.


  1. Oh no! That sounds awful. I really hope you're 100% better soon...

  2. Hoping you feel better and get on track for this month! Maybe the meds for your thyroid are just what you need! Fingers crossed!

  3. That sounds terrible- I hope you feel better soon!!

  4. Oh dear. I hope you feel much better soon. That sounds absolutely miserable!

  5. Yuck! Feel better!

  6. Hi,

    Coming from ICLW. I really hope you feel better soon. I'll be dropping in again during the week.

  7. Yikes Michele - I'm glad you're starting to feel a little more human at least.

    We're both CD7...let's be cycle buddies and both get our BFPs this month, okay? Deal? DEAL!

  8. Stopping by from ICLW to say hi! Hope you get to feeling better very soon!

  9. Hey there! Thank you so much for visitng my blog and Happy ICLW! I was just recently put on thyroid medication b/c mine was low. (Is that hypo or hyper...I have no idea.) Anyway, finding that out was the best news ever b/c they told me it could be one of the main reasons I wasn't ovulating. I hope you fix your pesky thyroid soon!

    btw, I love the retro feel of your blog design!


  10. here from ICLW (and your post on my blog)

    My mom is hypothyroid and takes synthroid. (I have my levels checked periodically) Have your symptoms gotten better on the meds (not as cold, not fatigued?) If so, then your levels are probably good and I would imagine this might be all you need to get on track to pregnancy. Good luck!!

  11. Hi! Popped over from ICLW when I saw the title of your blog. I too love in the middle of nowhere in NM. I have a 200 mile round trip to my RE. What fun! But there are so few national labs in the country, so what else do you do if you have a Physicist for a hubby?

    Best of luck!
